New tee-shirts going well

They’ve only been on sale for 48 hours or so but it’s reported from HQ that our new tee shirts in support of the NHS and other key workers are going well and are proving popular well beyond Oldham and the surrounding areas.

Orders have already come in from places like Wakefield, Walsall and Sunderland.

Half of the profits from the sale of these ‘NHS’ shirts will go to local NHS charities so by buying you are not only helping Roughyeds; you are also helping the NHS and all those wonderful key workers whose job on the front line during the Coronavirus pandemic has saved thousands of very sick people, including our very own Brendan Sheridan.

“We all owe a great debt to the doctors, nurses and other key workers who have put their own lives on the line to help everybody else and this is one way we can show our appreciation,”

said Oldham RLFC chairman Chris Hamilton, who is himself an NHS volunteer worker.

You have until next Sunday night, June 28, to put in your orders for the tee-shirt via the Roughyeds website. They are priced at £29 and come in all sizes (see website).

AS lockdown restrictions start to ease, now is the time for everyone connected with Oldham RLFC to do all they can to help with getting income from our Club Cash lottery back to where it was before the pandemic started to bite.

This is vital for the club and its finances which, as you all know, have taken a massive hit in the past 12 months.

Collectors will be returning to door-to-door visits in the next few weeks and we hope people who suspended payments will pick up where they left off as we strive and work hard to get back to where we were before the pandemic caused us to lose 50 per cent of our lottery income.

Many of our regular punters, who would normally pay a collector, have answered our calls for help by finding other ways to pay and to retain their chances of winning prizes.

To those people we are very grateful and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them once again for their loyal and continued support.

The lottery, of course, is potentially one of our biggest fund-raisers and for as little as £1 a week — more if you wish — you can help the club immensely and at the same time have chances to win £1,000, £100, £50, £25 or one of ten consolation prizes of £10.

That’s the present prize structure. There’s every chance it will be increased once we are out of lockdown, door-to-door collections start again and we get back to some sort of normality.

In the meantime you can join, or start up again, by contacting the club on 07904 898177 or by email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

For more information about the lottery, and for the “great opportunities” provided by our partnership with the National Youth and Community Development Association (NYCDA) go our Club Cash page.

There, you will find all the results and a detailed statement about getting back to normal with the help of our not-for-profit partners.

All proceeds from the partnership will continue to support the club and help us to meet the aims of our Club Cash activities, particularly in its aims and objectives to be an active stakeholder in the local community.
